Windows 7: Free Space Error SSD

07 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Free Space Error SSD

My SSD reports two different free space amounts.
In C Drive / Properties I have 107GB free
Yet in Disk Management it reports only 9GB free

I want to create a Over Provisioning Partition, and my Samsung Dashboard says there's mot enough space. It appears that the Samsung software reports what Disk Management sees.

How do I free up the space I need?
Remember, this is a SSD, so I think Defrag / Claim Free Space is out....

Maybe you have misread the information under Windows Explorer

Hi BillS22,

It sounds like you may be misreading the information provided. If you look at a drive in Windows Explorer it usually says "x free of y gigabytes",

Perhaps you have "10 GB free of 107 GB" or something similar in Explorer, and Disk Management is correctly showing 9 Gigs (or thereabout).

Kind Regards,


P.S. As stated by pbcopter please post a couple of screen shots.
